Both teams produced high-quality cricket in the second match of the Asia Cup 2022. Eventually, the men in blue managed to outplay Babar & co and registered a win by five wickets to gain the top position in the Group A of the tournament.

Other than the thrilling action of the match, it made into the news because of another reason. After the conclusion of the match between India and Pakistan, the cricket’s governing body imposed a fine on both teams for taking more than the required time to bowl the 20 overs in both innings.

This decision from the apex council of cricket gave a chance to fans for showing their creative minds on the microblogging site Twitter. They took no time to mock the GDP of Pakistan when it was about to pay the fine imposed by cricket’s governing body.

The match was a roller coaster ride for both the teams from start to the conclusion.

Now coming back to the procedure of the imposition of the fine on both the teams for slow over-rate, then both India and Pakistan failed to bowl all the overs in the allotted time. As a result of it, they had to bring an extra fielder within the radius of a 30-yard circle.

Basically, it was the penalty that cricket’s governing body imposed on both the teams within the premises of the match, but other than this, cricket’s governing body also fined both the teams 40 percent of their match fees as they maintained the slow over-rate in their first match of the tournament.
